Chief among these updates is like Adobe's plan from Lightroom.

Facebook Live starts rolling out own screen-sharing feature

Facebook Live starts rolling out own screen-sharing feature

Video live streaming is often thought of these days as a way to broadcast events, gathers, and whatnot on social media. The idea, however, stems back to the days when streamers showed off their desktop screens, either to broadcast games or content creation. Somewhat giving a nod to its roots, Facebook Live is now reported to be rolling out a feature that will let users share their screen without the need for a third-party software, taking it one step closer to becoming an all-in-one live streaming solution.

Outlook desktop app is finally getting a long overdue facelift

Outlook desktop app is finally getting a long overdue facelift

Outlook, at least until recently, has been hailed as the pinnacle of Personal Information Management (PIM) software. It has, however, never really been user friendly in its interface and appearance. And even when Microsoft gave its Office suite a visual overhaul, Outlook remained inconsistent between platforms and versions. But with Microsoft trying to push its new Fluent Design language, that is slowly changing. Outlook fans will soon be treated to a whole new desktop app that won’t look out of place beside other updated Microsoft Office software, whether on Windows, Mac, and even the Web.

Whatsapp exploit can give a glimpse of your sleep, chatting habits

Whatsapp exploit can give a glimpse of your sleep, chatting habits

WhatsApp, despite its claims to privacy and end-to-end encryption, has never really recovered from the scandals that plagued it, especially after its acquisition by Facebook. This recently discovered vulnerability doesn't help it either, especially when it can, amusingly or not, be used to establish infidelity. All that from an exploit that allows others to see your online and last seen status, which can eventually be correlated to your sleeping patterns and who you might be chatting with.

Fake Adblock Plus Chrome extension gets into official Web Store

Fake Adblock Plus Chrome extension gets into official Web Store

Android is often criticized for having malware that gets passed Google's automated Play Store bouncer, but it is far from being the only Google-made platform to have such problems. A recent incident involving Chrome calls to mind how the web browser is perhaps even more susceptible to rather crude attempts at deceit. A still untraced fake Addlock Plus browser extension, for example, not only managed to get into the Chrome Web Store but even stayed long enough to be downloaded around 37,000 times.

Downgrade to iTunes 12.6.3 if you want app support back

Downgrade to iTunes 12.6.3 if you want app support back

iTunes 12.7 consolidated Apple's narrative for what the iTunes desktop program is really supposed to be. Instead of a free for all syncing program between a Mac or PC and iOS device, it laser focuses on only the parts that have to do with entertainment and multimedia, like music, videos, and podcasts. As such, iTunes 12.7 threw out support for managing apps and many users were up in arms about it. Fortunately, Apple has silently made available a 12.6.3 version of iTunes with that feature, but there are a few caveats to be mindful of.

Apple releases kernel source code for iOS, ARM macOS

Apple releases kernel source code for iOS, ARM macOS

While it doesn't have as aggressive a stance against open source as the old Microsoft did, Apple has never really been seen as an open source-friendly company. Which is somewhat ironic considering some of its core foundations are built on open source software, like the BSD kernel and the KHTML engine used by WebKit. So it's not exactly a small thing, though not exactly huge either, that Apple just released the kernel source code for iOS. What's more interesting, however, is that Apple also released the source code for macOS kernel for the ARM architecture.

Google’s next revolution may cut the touchscreen altogether

Google’s next revolution may cut the touchscreen altogether

A patent published this week points to Google having a deep knowledge of spacially aware gestures for control of devices of all sorts. We'd known that Google was working on tech to recognize our hands swiping through the air as controls for smartphones - but this is a bit different. This expands upon that - beyond the realm of pre-configured controls and into the world of DIY.
